You can rest assured you will no longer have the chip if you follow Mr C's advice! No metal = no paint = no chipped paint!

if you really want to touch that up dont go to the dealer, they'll just rip you off. Go to your local auto parts store and they should have touch up paint that will match that for alot less money.

Sometimes that works, our 97 Teal one, nope, could not even get if from the dealers, I had a customer of mine who has a body shop mix up a match paint and made me a small bottle.

I don't care so much about the paint... it is the rust that happens afterwards that I hate!
